Chain, chain, chaaaaaaaaain. Chain of Sovereigns.
Ok, so it's not exactly the Motown classic, but still, Sovereign's Chain is available now. Players are attempting to create the biggest difference between the scores of their two suits of cards. But with opponents being able to play cards into their chains, that's not going to be easy. You can pick up your copy of this new hand management game now from WizKids.
From the announcement:
WizKids is pleased to announce that Sovereign’s Chain, a new, futuristic hand management card game, is now available in North American Game Stores!
In this 2-4 player game, players will seek to achieve the highest score by placing cards with a variety of abilities and numbered values in their Chain. Each card is one of two suits, designated by either a Star or a Planet symbol in the upper left-hand corner. Players must end the game with the greatest difference between the total values of each of the suits in their chain.
Each turn, players must play a Class card from their hand into either their chain or the chain of an opponent, then activate its ability. The game also includes Shield and Modifier tokens, which can either modify the value of a target card, or prevent a card from being targeted by another card’s abilities. The game also includes Suit tokens, which can alter the suit of the card they are placed on.
The game immediately ends when any player’s chain reaches 7 Class cards at the end of their turn. After a brief final phase, where players reveal and activate any facedown cards, scoring begins, and players will calculate the difference between the total points granted by each suit, respectively. The player with the greatest difference wins the game! Sovereign’s Chain is available now, so pick it up at your Friendly Local Game Store or online today!
